RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship

The RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship course is designed for those interested in sailing, day boaters, sea-anglers and anyone who likes to get out on the water. It provides an introduction to navigation and safety for new and inexperienced skippers, but is also a handy refresher for skippers and crew that may need some revision.

The course is delivered via the RYA interactive software or in the classroom and takes about 16hrs to complete.
